    Many thanks for the invitation and for giving me the opportunity to address this distinguished audience. I am not for the first time in Chicago. It is also not for the first time that I am attending a conference organized by the Heartland Institute.

"Sylvia" (not her real name) told our reporter that her employer, EM Distribution Services, paid her $1,500 a week, in cash, for encrypting and...
